Nick Ready for Fatherhood Again

Fatherhood, Nick at Nite’s first original animated series, is set to return with season two on Tuesday, May 17 at 9:30 p.m. Based on the best-selling book of the same name by Bill Cosby, the show will return with all-new installments featuring guest spots by Jim Belushi (According to Jim), Don Knotts (Pleasantville) and Malcolm Jamal-Warner (The Cosby Show).

Blair Underwood (Full Frontal, Malibu’s Most Wanted, TV’s Sex and the City) returns as the voice of Br. Bindlebeep, a high school teacher struggling to raise three kids of his own with wife Norma, voiced by Sabrina LeBeauf (The Cosby Show). In the season opener, "Behind Closed Doors," Bindlebeep catches his daughter, Angie, hiding a boy in her room and assumes the worst, only to learn that things are not always what they seem.

The first season of Fatherhood, which premiered in June of 2004, drew nearly 64 million viewers during its run, according to Nickelodeon. The series went on to win the Vision Award from The National Association of Minorities in Communications, tying for Best Comedy with Comedy Central’s Chapelle’s Show.

Produced at Nickelodeon Studios in Burbank, Calif., Fatherhood is exec produced by Bill Cosby, Charles Kipps (Little Bill, Cosby Mysteries, Law & Order) and David Brokaw (Little Bill). Six new episodes are scheduled to premiere on Tuesdays in May and June at 9:30 p.m. on Nick at Nite.
